It might sound really weird, but... I was jamming with a couple friends this weekend and we'd all crammed into my room and we wanted to do a little recording of some stuff we'd written, so I went through my adapter box and grabbed a mic and plugged it into my computer. The problem was when it came time to recording vocals we needed a stand and I don't own any... So I grabbed the first thing that I saw. A blank CD spindle. You know what I'm talking about; those spindles that blank CDs some on when you buy them. I stuck the microphone clip on top of the spindle and, surprise surprise, it fit perfectly. It isn't the nicest looking of solutions, but if you're ever in need of a desktop mic stand, or just a stand that is really low, then look no further than your computer and that pack of blank CDs you've got sitting next to it.
